I don’t normally ding people for stuff like this, but representing the President means you’re playing in the Big Leagues. And spelling mistakes are the sort of unforced error you’re supposed to only see in the minors.

(Note: I’m sure they will correct the image once enough people notice the error, so the link above may point to a version with “repealed” spelled correctly at some point in the future. The image that’s embedded in this post is a copy made at 4:55 PM Eastern time. It has not been altered in any way.)
